Program Description:

This programme on Development Studies with reference to Emerging Economies supports high-quality original research into the development model(s) and/or policies pursued by emerging economies. A large group of middle-income countries has emerged as a relatively new phenomenon featuring countries that need and seek little development assistance, are experimenting with a wide array of innovative policies in both social policy and economic policy, and in many cases are generating considerable political and economic power globally. These middle-income countries, the methods and models they are using to promote sustainable and equitable development, and the enduring challenges they face are all not well understood. Furthermore, their performance highlights crucial shortcomings and gaps in development theory and political economy. The programme seeks to advance both empirical and theoretical contributions to the understanding of development.
